  • Hydrating Lipstick: 3 Ingredients to AVOID

    July 08, 2019 2 min read

    Lipsticks can make many claims, from long wear, matte finish, to high gloss shine, but lipstick should also help care for your lips. When shopping for the best hydrating lipstick, there are three ingredients you need to avoid.

    Parabens: You’ve probably heard of these estrogen-mimicking ingredients. They’re a low-cost preservative so they appear in 85 percent of cosmetics. While the evidence is still inconclusive, parabens have been found in the tissue of breast tumors, can cause allergic reactions and are considered carcinogenic in high doses. Look at your lipstick labels for ingredients with “paraben” as a suffix—and then put those tubes back.

    Petroleum and other petrochemicals: Not only are these bad for the environment, cause clogged pores, rashes and acne. Check your lipstick for petroleum distillates, mineral oils and paraffinsand then steer clear, since those ingredients have a water-repellant nature that ultimately suffocates pores. 

    Fragrance or Parfum: Fragrances aren’t regulated because they fall under trade secret law, meaning companies don’t have to reveal their ingredient list lest they give a competitor insight into how to duplicate it. It also means that the FDA can’t determine what’s in those fragrances, leaving the consumer open to even ingredients that are banned in other forms—and more often than not, they’re comprised of endocrine-disrupting ingredients that can cause everything from migraines and skin rashes to respiratory issues and birth defects.

    Instead, grab a hydrating lipstick that contains safe and effective hydrating ingredients like Beeswax, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant-Based Extracts. The Perfect Pout Lipstick is free of nasty ingredients and gives stunning color along with deep hydration and SPF 30 protection - all in one!
